Wow, is this bra a stunner, or what?!

As many of my regular followers know, I’ve lost a significant amount of weight this year, and it’s affected my boobs. I’ve lost 2-3” off of my over bust measurement, so I’ve got a very limited amount of bras that fit, or sort of fit me now. My faves are Comexim and Ewa Michalak, and while I feel pretty comfortable with what size I can do in EM, not so much with Comexim, especially as most of my bras are altered. My birthday was in August, so I decided to use my discount with Breakout Bras and order an unaltered bra in a size smaller than I’d been wearing. I knew that my 70H - Comexim » Triss 3hc was once a titch too small, and now it’s a little bit too big, and my 65HH - Comexim » Scottie (648) was also fitting a little bit too big now, so I was thinking about trying 65H or 70G unaltered to gage the fit, because I really want to reorder my Hot Chocolate in a new size to wear. The problem was that most of the bras in the same cut had backorders on the sizes that I was interested in. This one, however, was in my size, and ready to ship with no waiting. It’s one that I have loved from the moment I saw it on Instagram. It’s also very similar to the 65HH - Comexim » Bridget Half Cup (554) that I was able to try a while ago. So I grabbed it!

My stats, currently:

28.5” snug
34.75-35” standing
38” leaning

9” vertical
9.5” horizontal
10” laying
(As of April, though it’s probably less now)

My tissue is very very soft. Like pudding. I’m technically even, however because I have less upper fullness than I used to (which was still shallow), I fit more fob functionally. I’m also short rooted as a result, and center full. I need narrow wires, and immediate depth at the wire to accommodate my projection.

The details:

This bra is an unlined, 3 part half cup. The colourway is called Dove Brocade on the website, and it’s mostly a dove grey base, with pinky purple and white stitching. I think it’s kind of a flower pattern but, it’s a little whimsical, and I don’t know for sure what it is. The bow at the center is the same pinky purple, and the inside of the cups is lined with the same colour mesh.

The fit:

So, the advice of the website said that the band was stretchy, so to size down if in between two sizes. The sentiment was also echoed here in the reviews. I was nervous about the size as I had also read that the cup size was running small. The previous unlined half cup was a 65HH though, so I suspected that it would be too large now. I normally take a 65/30 if it is a stretchy band or it’s got the extra set of hooks, or a 70 because they tend to fit tighter and more like a 30 than a 32. Due to the comments on the band, I opted for the 30, and almost a 28. I have to agree that the band is super stretchy. I’m actually wondering if I do need a 28. I feel comfortable in it, though once I tightened up my straps some, I felt like it wanted to make the band ride up. Loosely pulling with it on the loosest hooks, I can get 2 fingers underneath, comfortably...but, I can stretch it more and get my hand in. I readjusted the band position, and I don’t think it will move. I’m concerned that if I do size down, that it will wear out faster. As for the fit of the cups, I initially thought it was maybe too big still, or too tall, though I adjusted the straps a bit tighter than they were as they came, which helped. My small side is still gapping but, it’s ok on my big side, and I don’t think I can get away with a smaller size. The cups are lined with a little strip of clear elastic, which is usually a problem for me but, it seems ok here. Normally, I would have straps moved in 2cm but, I don’t know if it’s possible on this kind of bra, and like I said, I wanted to try totally unaltered to see what it was like (and BOB only sell unaltered unless you request alterations through them).

Anyway, I love this bra! I’m so happy with it! The only thing is whether I should swap it out with a 28G for a bit of a snugger band. I’ve messaged customer service about this and included a few videos for a fit check.

    This bra is gorgeous on you!
    Thanks for the review and sizing info. Glad the cups worked out for you. Hopefully the band is okay for you, or BOB will have some good advice on that.
    As far as I know, Comexim does not do alterations on their unlined bras, I don’t think?

    Love this on you! It’s one of my prettiest Comexim bras I own. You also can’t beat the comfort of a Comexim!

  • Thanks. BoB suggest the size down in the band.

    Here’s the response from BoB:

    It seems like you'd get a more secure fit, as well as better boost into the upper cups if you do the 28G UK size instead. The fact that you tightened the straps (which gave you a better hug along the upper bust) but it caused the band to scoot up a bit already and you had to tug it back into place is usually a pretty clear indicator that you'll want the smaller band size for longer wear and to maintain good support as the bra's elastic stretches over time with wear.

    The snugger band will also hug the entire bra more firmly, pulling the cup fabric more taut to the bust and boost your tissue a bit more firmly into the upper cups. If the band is a little snug for comfort in the very beginning, but you're liking the fit overall, then you can always add a bra-back extender until it 'breaks in' and gets a little more comfortable and molded to your body with a few wears.

    I hope this helps you decide what you prefer for the fit of Onyks!

    *I did readjust the band but it did seem to stay in place when I lifted my arms, so I’m not sure. I’m thinking maybe I will try the 28G. I’d like to research the stretched band lengths of the 60s here.

    Calluna Veru pretty on you! I think BoB made a few good points about sizing down. If it would still be comfortable on you, you'd probably get a much better fit in the 28G. The only thing, of course, if your rib sensitivity to consider...would you actually get as much wear out of it if it was on the tighter side?

    The bra looks beautiful on you! As always, thanks for the highly detailed review that puts everyone else's to shame :)

    Wilderness1 yes, my rib sensitivity is a concern for sure if I size down. It looks like the stretched band measurements of the 60s here are just under 29”, which is just shy of what I prefer (29-30”) so I’d probably have to use an extender for the first little bit but, given that it is super stretchy, it might be ok.

    marilynne I try to be thorough, especially with descriptions, in case of any visually impaired people reading who are unable to see the bra.

    Hey everyone... at the suggestion of the BoB customer service, I went ahead and ordered the 28G, as it was the last one. I’ll be able to try both and return the one I don’t want. It’s already on the way!

    Calluna good luck! Looking forward to hearing how it fits comparatively

  • I’m expecting the 28G to arrive by the end of the week. Canada Post says to expect it Friday, but I did get the 30FF earlier than expected. That said, it’s Thanksgiving for us today, so Friday might be accurate. I’ll definitely update once I have it.

  • My 28G is here and I have a new set of pictures and review.

Straps are slightly too wide but comfortable enough, and cups are a smidge big but I think strap adjustment will fix
